Confused by the discovery of a bald patch on my scalp after symptoms have otherwise improved greatly
Hello, after one and a half years of using a high dose of Natpro daily (400-600mg), I am happy to report that I have had much improvement in my symptoms.
I had suffered from severe PMS symptoms since my early 30's (I am 39 now), the worst being fatigue so overpowering that I could not function for several days of each month, only being able to lay down for most of the day. The improvements have come very gradually, I was mistaken at first to hope that something I tried would remove the symptoms the next month, so I just wanted to say have patience with it, it can take a couple years for significant improvement.
Recently however, I discovered that I have a pretty large bald patch on my scalp, around 2 inches across, on the crown of my head to the left. What I've read on here indicates that it is alopecia areata. I was hoping that someone on this site could help me to understand what caused this? I feel like there must be a link with my hormone inbalance. Could it be that I am continually improving and that it is just a side effect of my body ridding itself of the excess oestrogen? Or is it a cause for more concern?
Thank you so much to Wray and Joy and others who have given me so much hope and information!
